Two versions of this old hymn by James C. Moore. The first is the classic rendering by The Carter Family:
And the second is one of those powerful performances made by Johnny Cash in his final years. (Johnny, of course, married June Carter.) His final recordings of various hymns–found in My Mother’s Hymn Book in the Unearthed collection–pack a lifetime of wisdom and suffering into every line he sings. His voice was better when he was younger, but he was never more profound, particularly as a Christian artist, than he was at the end.
